unix epoch sequence day omg!

people this is the coolest thing ever, and it's happening in 30 MINUTES!


The unix epoch time will be sequential for the first and last time in our lives. okay maybe not totally last. but I know it won't hit 2 on that first digit until 2033 or so, so don't hold your breath for this to happen again.

that's right, it's about to turn 1234567890!

i'm so excited! today is a wonderful day!

it happened and it was AWESOME! marc and i watched it together, then did a tequila shot, then made out.

so we also found websites where people were talking about parties going on for it... is it just me or does this not say "party"? i think if you're excited about the unix timestamp being sequential for one second, you probably celebrate most things alone in your parent's basement. or at least alone.

I sat here for 15 minutes and watched it without looking away, sad that my son wasn't here to watch it with me (because I was sure he could figure out how the page was coded)....I had my finger hovering over the print screen button so I could have a souvenir...and then the fireworks came and it startled me! So, I didn't get my print.

Today IS a monumental day....I found out today that my first novel is going to be published this summer!

Aww, shoot! We were going to observe it at work today, but that must have been one of the few times when all of us were working on something. :( There was a department-wide e-mail about it and everything.

Man. I can't believe we forgot after all the discussion.

I posted an email to my IT department about that, but no one was excited about it except me!! I was thinking of making a celebratory shirt on cafepress and buying it for myself:

totally make it - you won't be the only one to buy it (I would, but I have no $$ right now)

I hate to break it to you all, but there are some of us who recognise time before 1970. It will come to you in a few years when some one denotes 1/1/2000 as the beginning of some "age of enlightenment" and you will go WTF I remember before 2000.
